Entry Title Date
In Honor Of Colonel Daniel D. Pick April 10, 2014
Sam Farr, D-CA
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor a truly great American on the occasion of his retirement from the United States Army. On April 18, 2014, Colonel Daniel D. Pick will relinquish his command of Commandant of the Defense Language Institute for the Presidio of Monterey and retire from the Army after 29 years of exemplary service. It is my great pleasure to have had the opportunity to get to know this soldier scholar. He truly represents for me the highest qualities of military leadership: courage, vision, integrity, and keen understanding of the broader world that we live in. Peace is best served when we can bridge cultures. In light of his commitment to military language capacity, his own language and cultural skills, and his experience as a diplomat and soldier overseas, Colonel Pick, is the personification of this truth."
Remembering The Rwandan Genocide April 8, 2014
Steny Hoyer, D-MD
"I am sure many of us, Mr. Speaker, saw the movie “Hotel Rwanda.” Nick Nolte played the blue-helmeted colonel who was in charge of the U.N. unit. When carnage was occurring and the colonel that Nolte was playing was watching, someone asked: Why aren’t you doing something? And his response was: because that is not our mandate, it is to report."
